Here's what people have to say about Libaliano cooking classes:

"I heard a wonderful quote from Rick Stein today that I think encapsulates Libaliano: 'A recipe should be a tune that you can sing your own song to.' We can always pick up a cookbook or listen to a show and attempt to cook something. But you have added an ingredient that is missing from most cook books and shows and that is the passion to create something special and unique. You both have given your students, and me in particular, the desire/strength/courage... to experiment with recipes to give them our own personal touch. And for that I will always be very grateful."

"Claude and Maria couldn't be more engaging, fun and lovely. They are talented teachers! The duo hold their classes in Mediterranean and Lebanese cooking respectively. Workshops, for both absolute beginners and keen amateur chefs... Run, don't walk if you're interested to learn; this is a goody."

"It was the perfect present to give my daughter for her birthday. To prove it she tells me she has just bought all the ingredients and is going to make the whole menu for friends for lunch on Sunday. How lucky they are. Thank you again."

"Just want to say thank you for the wonderful session today - I enjoyed it very, very much!! Will even enjoy it more when having time for your lunch treat next time."

"I wanted to thank you both for the wonderful cooking course. I really enjoyed myself as well as all the superb food you taught us how to make. The other people in the class were all so nice and I was very pleased to have gotten to know you all over the five weeks. The day from start to finish was fun, educational and very relaxed – especially lunch at the end! P.S. looking forward to the cake baking session."

"I cannot imagine my week without my Wednesdays with Maria and Claude! Thank you for making it a great experience. I think you'll have to kick me out if you want to get rid of me!"

"Thank you very much for giving me such a jolly day on Wednesday. I very much appreciated it and loved the Linzertorte! Your classes have been the greatest of fun and I am enjoying them hugely."

"I can't think of myself without being part of Libaliano. It is the highlight of my week! Always looking forward to being in your lovely and warm kitchen."

"Yesterday was my daughters 13th birthday and as we had family over, I made the pomegranate chicken, vegetables with ricotta, spinach strudel and to top it all up, bruschetta! Needless to say they think someone foreign has entered my body!"

"Thank you for the wonderful fig biscuits recipe. I made the pappardelle and mushrooms for dinner tonight - it was delicious! My husband had three helpings! I also made the crab linguine for dinner on Wednesday night (4th time) my son cannot get enough of it."

"Thankyou THANKYOU Claude and Maria .. I really enjoyed your day and will definitely try out your chicken, mince, pasta and freekeh before Christmas if I can."

"I have already done something - chopped my onions in the way you suggested .. brilliant and I didn't cry!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed today. A big thank you to you and Maria. You were both inspirational."
